    Intelligent Algorithm – Unparalleled Speed and Accuracy

    The RADEAGLE algorithm is unique, using a neuron ensemble to create a multi-agent system. This multi-agent system in turn uses a mimetic learning algorithm that adapts reference data to the unique signature of the detector’s sensors. While continuously measuring background radiation, this “neuro-spectroscopic brain,” delivers unparalleled speed and accuracy for detecting and identifying over 100 nuclides, exceeding ANSI 42.34 requirements.  

    Operating Modes
    The RADEAGLE uses five basic operating modes: Dose Rate, Detect, Easy-ID, Spectrum, and Advanced. These five simple modes gives the user full system control ranging from quick and accurate identification to extensive spectrum analysis to expert system configurations. 

    Application Centric Approach
    A key benefit of the RADEAGLE algorithm is its optimization for multiple real-world applications. Through extensive simulation, validated and refined with real world empirical testing, the RADEAGLE’s performance is tuned and optimized for key isotopes associated with SNM in the nuclear security and safeguards market, NORM and IND for environmental and industrial applications and MED for nuclear medicine. Underwater measurements are also supported with a submersible, NaI model.
